It makes more sense to me that both front fans would blow air inward.  I wonder if the tech just said DanMack's fans were already installed correctly because that was easier than actually looking into issue.

I just took a look around the interwebs.  I couldn't find any desktops that don't have all front fans blowing air inward.  It seems odd that the Tower 5i would be the only pc with front fans blowing opposite directions.

Now I'm not so sure.  I just found a review on pcmag.com.  The fans are clearly shown mounted in opposite directions.  But then again, who knows if they just missed that the fans were installed incorrectly.

Normally I’d agree with you. The fact that there’s a vent on the bottom front of the case is what makes it make sense to me. If the front was just a flat closed off panel, then yeah flip the fan, but idk man I may just leave it. The PC runs super cool as it is tbh lol

Hi all,

 

sorry to hear that you're experiencing an issue with the Fan illumination on your machine. I would advise getting in touch with our service to get the fan cable attached to the right socket.

 

As mgvh is stating in his reply, it should be pretty straight-forward to swap the socket for this cable and it is only necessary to take off the side panel on your tower to have access to the bottom of your motherboard. Thank you mgvh for providing the instructions and the picture! The reply from mgvh is quoted below:

Lenovo sent out a technician to fix mine today, and he did exactly what @Bert88 described. I've attached a pic with the fan cable connected to ARGB3. The cable had originally been plugged into the socket just to the left of it (ARGB4).

Do note an oddity in the Launcher RGB Lighting customizer.

If either the front or back fan is set to Wave or CPU Temperature, it will change both of them so that they are in sync.

 

Could you please kindly reply with the MTM of your machine to this thread so I can forward this issue internally?

 

Best regards,

Glad I could help. What is the "MTM" I should provide?

Huge thanks to everyone on this thread! I followed the instructions/pictures and switched it from ARGB4 to ARGB3 and it fixed the problem. The CPU RGB fan light is now working. As mentioned, it synchs to the case fan but I don’t mind that all.
